meatless monday in 5 minutes ~ bean & cheese roll upsPosted: May 6, 2013
It’s been one of those weeks, a few of ’em actually. With too much to do & not enough time to even come close to being done, I’ve been finding myself standing in the kitchen at 6pm with nothing cooked, nothing planned, nothing but a couple of hungry kids. The following has saved me from complete dinner time meltdown on more than one occasion recently. It’s not fancy but it is tasty & if you’re kids are big enough they can help make it. We usually have these roll ups with chips, salsa & guacamole, and a fruit salad. They travel well, so are great in lunch boxes.
BEAN & CHEESE ROLL UPS
- 1 can vegetarian refried beans
- shredded cheddar cheese
- soft taco size whole wheat or flour tortillas
Lay one tortilla flat on a microwave safe plate & spread with a layer of beans & then a layer of salsa. Top with shredded cheese. Microwave for 30 seconds – 1 minute, until cheese is melted. It’s hot! Let cool slightly, then roll it up & cut in half.
Eat & enjoy!
Other optional fillings: sliced olives; scallions; whole beans such as black beans, pinto beans, kidney beans; rice; corn; cilantro; and/or sour cream (put it on after microwaving).
